you for being with us. barack obama often mocks the foreign policy of president george w. bush. as president himself obama cannot escape his mounting foreign policy flies. and he and his administration and the american people are now bearing the embarrassing consequences. former egyptian president, president obama held for some from power more than two years ago. to the was ordered to be released from prison. he is to be released within 48 hours. his release is another slap in the face for mr. obama. follows the ouster of the muslim brotherhood from power and mr. obama's president of choice. the violence and deadly clashes between the military-run vernment and the muslim brotherhood and the protesters are now responding. continuing with violence in all likelihood this friday when supporters reportedly will conduct what they call a day of martyrs. and no relief for president obama in syria either. opposition forces climbing more than 1,000 civilians were killed in chemical gas attacks earlier today on the outskirts of damascus. the alleged attacks come exactly one year and one d

secretary kerry talk. let me give you key point from president obama. i think this is the key statement he made. he has not made a final decision on actions that will be taken. that was, again, on remarks he made just a few moments ago. take a look at dow jones industrial average. there wasn't a lot of reaction there but that's because a lot of the stance he said was in secretary kerry's remark he had made in the final hour just before him. you see the dow fluttering around and that's because of what secretary kerry said. secretary kerry's speech was aggressive and restrainerestrai. he comes out agrss ive saying u.n. cannot gavel niz the world to act. then towards the end of his speech he becomes a little more, shall we say, restrained. the mal market rallies as he says the response from the u.s. will be limited and tailored, it will not involve any boots on the ground and the primary objective is to have a diplomatic process. which is what a lot of people are hoping for. interestingly today we have seen the markets hit the most act a little better. i'm talking about emerging markets which
